    Linkin Park front of house sound engineer, Pooch has just finished up a chat with LPU members. You can check out a few highlights of what Pooch had to say about working with Linkin Park and much more below:

    - Pooch broadcasted from home and spoke about working with Slash and Myles Kennedy.
    - Pooch has worked with Linkin Park for six years.
    - He's really excited for the upcoming tour.
    - He doesn't know anything about the new Linkin Park album, other than what has been shared so far with the fans.
    - Says that Linkin Park will hit all the places fans want to see evntually, during the upcoming World Tour.
    - The band start rehearsals later this month for the upcoming tour.
    - Pooch says the set will be majorly rearranged for the upcoming US tour.
    - BURN IT DOWN will likely be the only new song played on the upcoming Summer dates.
    - Blackout was probably one of the more difficult songs to mix from ATS.
    - Robot Boy was something they rehearsed a couple times but never played. He doesn't know if they ever will play it.

    Pooch is a comedic genius and went into detail on many stories about being on the road. It wouldn't do them any justice by typing them out here. However, we posted a few highlights pertaining to Linkin Park above. If you missed the chat, you missed out!

    Be sure to check out our Podcast with Pooch from last year if you're yet to do so, Pooch is a great guy and any time he's with the fans, it's always a great time!

    PS I missed the first bit where he said US tour will be after EU.

    Warm up for the US tour pretty much :lol:. The album will (likely) be out by the time the Europe tour starts so it gives them time to get the rust out before going on tour.

    great chat
    I always like Pooch chats, as you said the guy is a genius and really cool!
    gosh he answered TONNES of my questions, pertaining to Linkin Park that we harass the band and probably petition whatever to get the unreleased tracks :p

    apart from so many others, the first one being his first job and all but the most important (and best) for me is they want to come to India, lot of fans here and they should. :D
    man I was so dam happy when he said that :D \m/

    That sounds really bad. This basically meaning that its the only good song? Why tour on an album if you only play one song.

    We don't know this for sure. Pooch doesn't know this for sure. It was said that the set will be rearranged for the US tour, that comes after the Summer dates. It was just a guess. Don't take it to heart.

    No, it means the album won't be out by then & that the Euro run is not part of the new album tour.

    I'd love to see a show that was not directly promoting an album. More of a chance to see some oldies that haven't been played in a while!

    Exactly. They will probably do a big Europe arena tour later this year after the US tour. The summer Europe tour is pretty much all festivals so it would be a great way to warm up for the US tour and a good time to showcase Burn It Down live!

    On the other hand it looks as if the new music is too difficult to play live, which was the issue with some tracks on ATS.

    Or this.

    I would think it's more likely that Burn It Down will be the only new song played during the upcoming festival tour in Europe. After that i'd be very surprised if they don't play more new songs on their world tour, including Europe dates. I mean, what band does a tour to support their new record only to play one song from it..... very unlikely I feel.
